A Season of Change
This year has brought many changes and I am grateful to be back in my studio painting again.
I have completed many new paintings and look forward to having people up to view them and stay for a visit.
Artists naturally social distance so it is a pleasure when we can invite friends and family in to see what we have been up to.
If you are interested in a private showing or small group, please email or call to set up a time that is convenient. We adhere to the social distancing guidelines and provide masks.
I look forward to seeing you !

This posting is the third of three
charcoals showing individual triplets,
at the age of four, at moments
of preternatural solemnity.
This charcoal shows the other of the two
boys of the triplets,
but by happenstance shows only the left
side of his face.
The full portrait is of a cousin. Both children appear solemn;
the cousin’s gaze is less guarded.
